"the wall street journal" reports the fbi agent who launched the petraeus investigation was removed from the case after it was discovered he sent a shirtless picture of himself to jill kelly. the agent who knew kelly sent the pictures before the investigation began. he was later removed from the investigation because supervisors were concerned the agent may have become obsessed with the case. >> and there's more. a team of fbi agents searching paula broadwell's home yesterday. eight to ten agents brought cardboard boxes and searched both levels of the house. the fbi confirmed agents were there but wouldn't say what they were looking for. >> obviously, a lot going on here. we have two reports. chris lawrence of the pentagon and brianna keeler in our washington bureau.

, he's told the pentagon, that he hasn't done anything to wrong and you know he's obviously up for this promotion. you know him very well. i met him in afghanistan last year. he's incredibly respected among his peers. what do we make of these e-mails, first of all? >> reporter: well, we don't know what they actually contain. we know that some of these 20,000, 30,000 documents -- behind me there's a protest -- 20,000, 30,000 documents may be examined in case they contain inappropriate conduct by the general. nothing proven at this point. obviously serious enough that it's referred to department of defense inspector general to examine it. we don't know quite what this holds for his future. as you say, very respected by the men around him. a man with an incredible difficult task winding down the war. and a man of course who inspired great loyalty in those who served around him. i recall one aide who served through iraq plab many times, didn't want to go back to the battlefield but would if john allen asked. he described to me how they were together at a dining facility in iraq, th
how deep does this go? cnn has this story covered with correspondents at the pentagon this morning, at the white house this morning, and in beirut, a packed two hours ahead for you. we'll be talking with utah congressman jason chaffetz. maryland congressman elijah cummings. jim mcgreevey will be our guest, georgia congresswoman tom price and florida congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz joins us. it's tuesday, november 13th, "starting point" begins right now. >>> morning, welcome, everybody. our "starting point" this morning. breaking news. another top military general has now been linked to the sex scandal that forced out cia director david petraeus. forced him to resign. general john allen, the commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan is now under investigation for alleged inappropriate communications with jill kelley. now investigators are said to be looking into the 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails and other documents that he sent to her. kelley, of course, is the florida woman whose original complaint to the fbi about threatening e-mails inadvertently exposed the aff
lawrence is at the pentagon. chris, i don't even know where to begin because there's so much to talk about. let's start with general allen. what's the implications of this -- of him being brought in to petraeus scandal and what has he said about it? >> so far, from what we've heard from defense officials, soledad, john allen has denied any wrongdoing in this matter. what is the matter at hand is on sunday the fbi notified the pentagon that they had 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails, which contained inappropriate contact between general john allen, and jill kelley. yesterday, secretary panetta asked that john kelley -- or john allen's nomination to be the head of nato be pulled back and put on hold while the inspector general starts to dig through all of these pages to find out exactly what happened. here's how it all connects. general john allen was stationed in tampa when he was at u.s. central command. so was general david petraeus. jill kelley worked as sort of a social liaison with a lot of the commanders there. in fact, she's been -- won awards for her work with some of the military f
with the latest on the scandal that keeps getting bigger and more bizarre, cnn's pentagon correspondent barbara starr and intelligence correspondent, suzanne kelly. welcome back to you both. >> thank you. >> when we talked on friday night, it was all just breaking and it seemed a relatively straightforward scandal but none of us thought it would stay that way, and sure enough, tonight, a really bizarre twist. it's not john kerry possibly becoming defense secretary, nothing bizarre about that at all. what is bizarre is this revelation in the "wall street journal" and it's reported there, we haven't independently corroborated this, that apparently the fbi agent originally detailed to investigate this scandal ended up sending shirtless pictures of himself to this other woman, the other other woman. suzanne kelly, where do we even start with this? >> i don't know. you know, after doing this story like pretty much nonstop for four days, i keep thinking that we might be finding out the last sort of crazy detail and another one crops up. i have a feeling that's going to continue to happen for a couple
are debating whether to charge her with a crime. jennifer griffin working this angle from the pentagon tonight. jennifer, she did have permission to have some classified information. it's just, well, they don't know which. >> well, she had permission until it was taken away in recent days due to this current fbi investigation. paula broadwell is an army military reserve lt. colonel who has security clearance to view classified information but not to take it home with her. the fbi says that there is no evidence so far that david petraeus shared classified documents with broadwell, shep. >> shepard: and the fbi director jennifer was on capitol hill today talking about -- talking to lawmakers about this investigation. >> that's right. after congressional leaders from the intelligence committees complained about not being informed until now. the leaders of the senate select intelligence committee senators dianne feinstein and cincinnati saxby chambliss released a joint statement in which they said, quote: today we received a comprehensive briefing from fbi director robert muller and the deputy di
to grow more bizarre by the day. first stop, pentagon and cnn's chris lawrence. so, chris, what specifically are investigators looking for in those messages? morality aside, how serious of a concern is an extramarital affair? >> it's very serious in the military. you're talking about an active duty officer, carol. and under the uniform code of military justice, you can be prosecuted for adultery. john allen is a married, fo four-star general who has been running the war in afghanistan. he had already flown from afghanistan here to washington. that's how quickly all of this broke down. he was already here in washington just 48 hours away from starting his senate confirmation hearing to perhaps become the head of nato. now that this has all broken, secretary panetta has gone to the president and asked that his nomination be put on hold. they're still keeping him as the head of nato because they've got another confirmation hearing for allen's successor. but right now this has really thrown the whole plan of succession into a state of flux right now. >> chris lawrence live at the pe
machine is in full cycle on this one. the pentagon says it's about 30,000 pages of documents. they may not all be e-mails, but a good portion of them are e-mails between allen and jill kelley. pentagon official telling reporters today in his words, they may have been inappropriately flirtatious. what does that mean? well, the word on the street is that he might have written some of these e-mails and maybe in some cases called her sweetheart. nothing more meant by it, we're told, than he's a virginia gentleman but, and it's a big but, on the other hand, defense secretary leon panetta ordered up a full-blown inspector general investigation, knowing he would set off a new firestorm across washington and leon panetta doesn't do that lightly. people on the other side tell us panetta would not have done it if there wasn't something to all this. >> right. the woman at the center of all this, this woman jill kelley, i'll turn to you, suzanne, on this. i want to play a tape, a 911 tape of kelley calling the tampa police to complain about people who were around the house, citing her status as ap
pentagon correspondent jennifer griffin. the factor will be right back. >> bill: first presidential news conference since last march. a republic strategist and kirsten powers, a democrat and fox news contributor. kristen and kirsten, sounds like aba is being introduced on the program. all right, powers. basically a waste of time, right? >> well, it wasn't a waste of time because there was one thing that the president said that added, i think, to the libya story when he was talking about susan rice and he basically was really offended that anybody would criticize susan rice for her statements that she made on the sunday shows and he said, you know, why is she being cite sized she went on these shows she knew nothing about benghazi. >> bill: why did she go on the shows then. >> right. exactly which raises the question. >> bill: let me set it up in case people didn't see it okay. >> bill: senator mccain and lindsey graham of south carolina are threatening to block the nomination of susan rice if the president wants her to be secretary of state which i don't think is going to harassment i do
released an oversight report. he believes is frivolous pentagon spending, department of everything. he found a pentagon grant for a smart phone app when it's time for a coffee break. and a price tag $100,000 included a session, did jesus die for clingons, too? and 1 1/2 million dollar to develop a new kind of beef jerky and coburn says, quote, using defense dogs to create beef jerky or "star trek" does nothing for our nation. we told you that montana state representative jerry o'neal wants to be paid in cold and silver coins according to a strict interpretation of the constitution. well, that request has now officially been denied. a state legislative attorney said, o'neal could introduce a bill alawing him to be paid in gold and silver, but the republican lawmaker does not intend to go that route. over the past couple of weeks, many in the northeast experienced the worst nature has to offer, as well as the best mankind has a give. there are many wonderful stories about the recovery efforts from superstorm sandy and last week's nor'easter, but it wasn't one of them. and folks that are
allen, believes he's doing and has done an excellent job at isap. and i would rephrase the pentagon for the process underway with regards to general allen. >> reporter: now carney downplayed questions on whether this whole situation illuminates something about the culture of military leadership. he said these are two events seeming to say they are two isolated instances, but zoraida, he did say that the president was surprised, i guess that's not particularly surprising, to learn about general petraeus. and that's really as far as carney would go, saying he was very surprised and that was his initial reaction to learn of this situation when he first learned on wednesday. >> i know he called it an unwelcomed development as well. this afternoon the president will hold his first press conference in his second term, what do you expect him to focus on? >> reporter: what isn't he going to be asked about, that's the thing. he has not had a real press conference, i think you can say, a rather extensive press conference in months. he did one in the spring. a more extensive press conference.
to defuse the situation. that is not all washington is doing. let's go to cnn pentagon correspondent barbara starr in washington. barbara? >> the big concern here in washington is a ground war in gaza. there is growing concern that israeli troops and tank forces might cross the border and move into gaza. that is the major escalation that the u.s. does not want to see. so, the calculation now is, what does it take to make hamas stop its rocket attacks into israel and israel feel comfortable enough with that to pull back on the air strikes and pull back on any ground forces that it is assembling near the gaza border. there has been a lot of diplomacy going on. defense secretary leon panetta traveling in asia, calling the israeli defense minister barack. secretary of state hillary clinton firing up the diplomatic phone lines calling israel, turkey and jordan. randi? >> barbara starr in washington, thank you. as you can see, cnn has every angle covered on this story. >>> much more ahead this hour. here's a look at what we have coming up. >>> on the brink of war. as fighting escalates between isr
's husband, navy captain bob dolan who died in the pentagon on 9/11. she met the puppy, dolan, for the first time. >> hello, baby. >> reporter: 18 months later, dolan is all grown up. and with his handler, now ready to graduate from the tsa's bond detection academy. >> good, good, over here. >> reporter: a big day for which lisa and daughter, rebecca, have driven all the way to san antonio. >> hello, baby, do you remember me? >> reporter: so what is it like to see him all grown up? >> it is just wonderful, wonderful. i know now that he is going to go out there and he is going to work. >> reporter: sniffing for bombs is a big game for the tsa dogs, but almost half the puppies in the program wash out. not dolan, now he is leaving the training terminal here in texas and headed for a new assignment in maui, and heading there with two of his classmates. handler frank diangelo is going with him. >> every time i hear the name, dolan, i think of you. >> reporter: for her dad, who was a technician, it all came full circle. >> i am really proud when i tell people that he was the bomb guy, i think it i
the pentagon. we're hearing so far there have been no official findings that broadwell broke any laws or engaged in criminal activity. why suspend her security clearance? >> well, you know, fran townsend is reporting just that, john, that all the indications are, from the laumt forces she's spoken to, not egregious violation. broadwell is a reservist in military intelligence with the army. and inside the military, a violation, even if it's so-called minor, of handling classified information, especially when you're a military intelligence analyst is quite serious. yes, the army has suspended her security clearance. i want to read to you the statement that the army put out. the army said, quote, the army has been cooperating with federal law enforcement authorities in this matter and those actions are ongoing. appropriate actions with regard to this officer's clearance and access have been taken. so now what we know is the military is also involved in this. analyzing what is going on, pulling broadwell's security clearance, at least for now. she is in the position of having to demonstra
at the pentagon. when exactly will petraeus meet with the lawmakers and do we know where? >> it's a good question. first of all, as you mentioned, they are going to be having house and senate intel committee hearings today. mike morell, the acting director of the c.i.a., will be speaking to lawmakers during those hearings. david petraeus will not be attending those hearings today. we understand that he will be on capitol hill tomorrow before the house select intelligence committee. that's mike rogers, congressman mike rogers' committee, at 7:30 tomorrow morning. on friday, david petraeus is scheduled to appear before that committee. we understand he will not be addressing the f.b.i. investigation that led to his affair, but that he will be talking about benghazi exclusively and what happened there. meanwhile, the f.b.i. is still investigating how paula broadwell, his mistress, ended up with so many classified documents at her home in north carolina. agents, f.b.i. agents returned to her home on monday night. but as of now, have not found that petraeus was involved in any sort of national security
allen's predecessor in afghanistan, david petraeus. fbi investigators you be covered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate communications between general allen and jill kelley whom he and his wife had gotten to know in tampa. they were reviewing between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents, including e-mails over two years. the fbi said some were flirtatious, but the general strongly denies any misconduct, and the fbi found no wrongdoing. still, jay johnson, the pentagon's general counsel, saw a number of the e-mails before advising secretary panetta to refer the matter to the department's inspector general for further investigation. >> nobody should jump to conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job in isap in leading the forces, and he certainly has my continued confidence in leading our forces and continue the fight. >> reporter: officials say the fbi discovered the communications while investigating kelley's e-mails after she complained about anonymous threats that turned out to be from paula broadwell. the president was first told on friday, the day he

's senate hearing on the tedly attack in libya? barbara starr is at the pentagon. barbara, general petraeus was to be a primary witness in that closed door hearing. what now? >> well, by all accounts he will not appear at this week's hearing. the man who will is mike morrell, his deputy and ci airks, now essentially the acting director of the agency. mr. morrell, a highly respected intelligence professional, has been with the agency for many, many years. would know all the same information that david petraeus knows. but the question on the table, carol, is whether that's going to be politically enough for congress. are they so irritated about this entire matter that they will subpoena petraeus in the weeks ahead and compel him to come testify about what he knows about the benghazi attacks? >> barbara starr reporting live for us at the pentagon this morning. this affair is baffling on so many levels. how could a man with such a pristine reputation show such awful judgment? and how could this woman have such unprecedented access? the answer may be as simple as one slippery step at a time. lis
of day over several years. according to the f.b.i. and the pentagon, they have declined to comment on the nature of the relationship. let's just say they were friendly, at least e-mail wise. >> gretchen: they are saying that it was inappropriate communication. so it doesn't sound like they were joking with each other. >> steve: potentially inappropriate. >> gretchen: well, yeah. alleged. but i don't think they used the word inappropriate, unless they were pretty sure that's how they felt the tone was. in the meantime what, does this mean for general allen? he's been in charge of afghanistan? he was supposed to move up. now they'll put that promotion on hold. so while they do this investigation. the whole thing is so interesting about now this jill kelly connection, she's this sociallyian son, volunteer gig in tampa. but what was she being social about? apparently she was e-mailing a lot and getting e-mails originally from paula broadwell, very good friends with general petraeus and his wife. now she has this very good relationship with general allen which remains a question mark. s
refer you to the pentagon for the process under way with regards to general allen. >> meantime, soledad, president obama will welcome dozens of business leaders to the white house today. some of whom support something he wants to do, which is increase taxes on the wealthy. obviously the white house is hoping that maybe that will convince some house republicans to budge on this a little bit. although i've talked to some republicans who say, don't count on that. soledad? >> all right. brianna keilar for us this morning. thanks, brianna. cnn's special coverage of the president's news conference will begin at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. wolf blitzer is hosting that, and we will obviously carry that for you live when it happens. want to talk a little bit more about the fiscal cliff. chief business correspondent ali velshi joins us. you heard brianna talk about this meeting with ceos about that. how much of that is pr and how much of that is really critical conversation? >> well, the very conservative leaders, and anti-tax leaders, have called the whole thing pr. they think it's giving the presid
would have been as large if the pentagon had done what it was supposed to do. >> gretchen: all right. i also want to get your thoughts on the protocol that jay carney, the spokesperson for president obama, has been talking about now in light of the petraeus situation and what the protocol of the f.b.i. was as to when they were supposed to tell the president about this. what is the protocol, in your mind, and is that a good excuse for not telling president obama about petraeus and do you buy it? >> no, i don't buy it. what they said is the f.b.i. had protocol not to inform the white house of a criminal investigation unless there is a security investigation. well, this clearly was a security investigation because the c.i.a. director was one, subject to blackmail because of this affair, and also there were questions about whether he had given classified information to his mistress. so obviously the f.b.i. protocols would not apply. in any event, the attorney general was told about this this past summer. the f.b.i. protocols don't apply to him. he had an obligation to tell the president tha
a moment ago while reporting from our barbara starr at the pentagon that we're expecting that the, the, the retired general is going to testify that immediately there was the sense there was this radical islamist group that was responsibility but at the same time a stream of intelligence that might have suggested that there was this anti-islamic video that was playing a role in some way. what, what do you make -- that's what he ends up testifying, what do you make of, of, of that? >> well, you know, i think, soledad, that the american people really want to get to the bottom of this and get some answers. i think a lot of people are frustrated that we hear one story one day and another story another day. and i think, by the way, this isn't just republicans, this is republicans, democrats, independents, all across the country, saying what happened? we want the truth. we want to know to make sure that this doesn't happen again. i mean remember, four americans chied, and i think general petraeus and all of the others who have been out there in the past, talking about benghazi, need to come
it can happen? >> not a chance. in washington, there's a game and i worked at the pentagon and there's a game called, fly it up the flagpole and see if anybody salutes. nobody is saluting at the nomination of susan rice, now, why? why don't i think they're going to do it. and confirmation hearings, what's going to happen? they're going to ask about benghazi, who changed those talking points? why did you have that fairy tale about a demonstration and a youtube video. the last thing the administration wants. they don't want an enemy, they'll put her name forward, not going to be support. withdraw it, give her another job, probably one that doesn't need senate confirmation. >> dave: if she's your pick, why do you put her out there. the president didn't believe everything in the talking points, i can't imagine he believed that. let me read you a quote about susan rice, she's ill-equipped to be the nation's top and she's managed to make an impressive array of enemies, that's from a liberal columnist, a very far left columnist, at washington post, and she has enemies on both sides of the a
